Rousell, René

René Rousell took his last breath surrounded by his loved ones on March 26th, 2009 after battling with a stage 3-4 Oligodendroglioma brain tumour. He was initially diagnosed in the summer of 2007 and was determined to fight for his life. A hero to all of us after undergoing three craniotomies, intensive chemotherapy and radiation, all within two years, he kept his good sense of humour and always tried to make us laugh throughout this nightmare. This a picture of him in 2008 at the Ottawa Spring Sprint; our team had raised over $6,000.00 for Brain Tumour Foundation of Canada. His big blue eyes and contagious smile will be forever missed by his family and friends.

Love you and miss you Dad!

Childhood Brain Tumour Signs & Symptoms

Earlier this year, you gave us your feedback in a survey on brain tumour signs and symptoms. One of the things we did with that survey was to compile a list of the most common signs & symptoms for children. Now, as part of Childhood Cancer Awareness Month, we are sharing compelling quotes from that survey and urging you to share them with this link to see the symptoms: www.braintumour.ca/symptoms. Thank you!
